PARIS UNE SOLITUDE PEUPLÉE
JUDICAËL PERROY

 

 


Judicaël Perroy, guitar


To listen to the sound of Judicael Perroy in this Contrastes Records recording is pure delight. From his first phrase, it is clear that for this guitarist his instrument is an extension of himself, the voice of his soul and the vehicle that allows him to express the existential intimacy of his being. At no point does it become an obstacle that stands in the way of his artistic expression. His performance is dominated by a quality of sound that demonstrates the impossibility of achieving anything less than becoming one with his instrument. It is more than instrumental technique, although it is grounded in the roundness of his sound, and its warmth. The subtleties of his performance go beyond this, and represent the union of science and art. The sensuality of his melodies comes not just from the magnificent quality of the trebles of his guitar, nor his velvet bass, but from a unique capacity to create a sound world that reveals his innermost secrets. In all, it is the sound of the guitar of today, inheritor of the the beauty bestowed by Torres, refined to accommodate the reality of today, whether it be the strings of carbon fibre o contemporary recording technology. Who would think that it was only a simple wooden box.
